Telemedicine is the practice of healthcare using interactive audio, visual and data communication. This includes healthcare delivery, diagnoses, consultation and treatment as well as education and transfer of medical data. The transmission of multimedia streams has remained a major challenge. Although the Internet remains basically insecure, technology allows today to define and implement complete security profiles for specific (medical) communities. Data security is a must as in all other… Expand
[Telemedicine and teledermatology (I): concepts and applications].
TLDR
The origin, development, applications, benefits, methodology, and components of telemedicine are reviewed, paying particular attention to technical, organizational, and legal aspects. Expand
Teledermatology: The Atlantic Experience
TLDR
Teledermatology offers the possibility of case-based continued medical education of non-specialists and generally follows the life curve of other successful new organisational models and does not affect demand for health services. Expand
Technological bases for teledermatopathology: state of the art.
TLDR
The technological bases for static and dynamic teledermatopathology and interaction between an user located on a remote area and a histological video image captured from a microscopy which allows navigation across the slide are reviewed. Expand
Position paper: Telemedicine in occupational dermatology – current status and perspectives
TLDR
Teledermatology might contribute to earlier prevention and notification of occupational skin diseases, and modern smartphone apps with artificial intelligence technologies may also facilitate self‐monitoring in employees working in high‐risk jobs. Expand
Teledermatology and its Current Perspective
TLDR
Basic concepts, the integration of noninvasive imaging technique images, artificial intelligence, and the current ethical and legal issues are reviewed. Expand
An Interactive Medical Support System for Dermatology in Rural Areas
TLDR
A 1Mbps, multimedia, two-way communication system that can be used between rural medical institutions that are short of medical specialists and the nearest university hospital, where medical specialists are always present, is developed. Expand
Telemedicina y teledermatología (I): concepto y aplicaciones
TLDR

Teledermatology: From Prevention to Diagnosis of Nonmelanoma and Melanoma Skin Cancer
TLDR
Overall, patients seem to accept teledermatology, considering it as an excellent mean to obtain healthcare, particularly in those areas with no expert dermatologists available, and Clinicians have also generally reported affirmative experiences with telederMatology in the skin cancer field. Expand
Teledermatology: an update.
TLDR
The feasibility of mobile teledermatology and mobile Teledermoscopy recently has been proven, and these new facilities have the potential to become an easy applicable tool for everyone and may open the door for a new flexible triage system for detection of skin cancer in general and melanoma in particular. Expand
Teledermatology: idea, benefits and risks of modern age – a systematic review based on melanoma
TLDR
It seems that teledermatology might be the answer to numerous issues concerning diagnosing, screening and managing cancers as well as pigmented skin lesions. Expand

Teledermatology in the nursing home.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that nursing home teledermatology consults may replace some onsite consultations by offering quality care in a costeffective manner and make a diagnosis and treatment plan in all cases in which they had access to both the image and patient history. Expand
Retrospective review of teledermatology in the Waikato, 1997–2002
TLDR
Despite the apparent success of 75% of consultations and positive feedback from patients attending them, the service has not proved sustainable long‐term because of other priorities for the delivery of health care, lack of support by clinicians and administrators, and ongoing financial costs.

A cost-minimization analysis of the societal costs of realtime teledermatology compared with conventional care: results from a randomized controlled trial in New Zealand
TLDR
From a societal viewpoint, and assuming an equal outcome, teledermatology was a more cost-efficient use of resources than conventional hospital care. Expand

TLDR
Teleconsultation of clinical and dermoscopic images of skin tumors via e-mail provides a similar degree of diagnostic accuracy as face-to-face diagnosis. Expand
A comparison of real‐time and store‐and‐forward teledermatology: a cost–benefit study
TLDR
This work states that teledermatology should be increased based on demonstration of favourable accuracy and cost–benefit analysis for the different methods of use of this technique. Expand
Concordance between telepathologic diagnosis and conventional histopathologic diagnosis: a multiobserver store-and-forward study on 20 skin specimens.
TLDR
Results suggest that telepathology performed by physicians active in dermatopathy may serve as a reliable technique for the diagnosis of cutaneous diseases when experts in dermatopathology are not available locally. Expand
Teaching Effects of Dermatological Consultations on Nondermatologists in the Field of Internal Medicine
TLDR
The aim of this study was to analyze the spectrum of skin diseases internists are confronted with and to study their diagnostic accuracy in cutaneous diseases and to evaluate the motivation for dermatologists to cooperate closely with internists. Expand
Dermoscopy of pigmented skin lesions--a valuable tool for early diagnosis of melanoma.
TLDR
Dermoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that links clinical dermatology and dermatopathology by enabling the visualisation of morphological features not seen by the naked eye, and dermoscopy is the most widely used. Expand
Digital Epiluminescence Microscopy in Nevi during Pregnancy
TLDR
There is considerable controversy as to whether pregnancy has an effect on MN and melanoma, and photographic studies have documented that pregnancy is not associated with any significant change in the size of MN. Expand
